Welcome to the Westburn House Restoration Project

Westburn House is an important and much-loved part of the heritage of Westburn and of Aberdeen as a whole. It sits in a public park, visible to thousands but is visibly deteriorating. Westburn house is a rare survival that excites the curiosity with the community.

The house was designed by a prominent architect, Archibald Simpson, who had been responsible for many major and influential buildings throughout the north east of Scotland. The design in a Greek revival style by an architect of national importance gives the house an important place in the architecture of Aberdeen, and places it in a national context.

The Westburn Development Trust have launched a “Conservation Led” renovation of the house. The Trust's objective is to see this great historic Archibald Simpson designed building saved and sympathetically restored back to its former glory but repurposed into a multi-purpose building which facilitates a diverse range of activities, projects and services that will improve the health, social, cultural, educational, environmental and employment-related outcomes for the community and be enjoyed by visitors from near and far.

For more information please see our Blog for project updates and the About our Project page for more information.
